Touring Mongkok Hong Kong was one of my favorite things!
Mongkok, which is located in the Kowloon district of Hong Kong, simply put is utterly fabulous. I believe at one point this place was named the busiest district in the World by Guinness World Record, and maybe it still is, who knows. I believe it. It was packed with people, shops, restaurants, you name it.
Mongkok is famous for shopping, specifically its ladies market, which sounds weird, but it’s just shopping, I swear. In general, China is known for its street shopping, and this area is one of the best for sure. Merchants are lined up just waiting for visitors to haggle – and these merchants sell everything – from knockoff designer items to goldfish, birds, kitchenware, even the latest fashions, jewelry, and wedding dresses! I’m not kidding when I say you can find anything here!
The atmosphere here is so lively, it’s addictive. Despite being exhausted, we couldn’t help but perk up as soon as we got off the MTR. Initially, we planned for a quick visit, but ended up having so much fun that we stayed until the street vendors packed up and closed for the night.
If this location isn’t on your sightseeing list, add it immediately! We already can’t wait to return!
